Replaceable fair use File:The stack and tilt swing.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:The stack and tilt swing.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Steamroller Assault (talk) 17:09, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for the warning, I removed the pic from the article just in case. --Nuares (talk) 17:23, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Book cover image[edit]

No prob Nuares. However, I can't see how a book cover can be replaced by a full public domain image depicting the same book. I've been out of Wikipedia for months and I guess book covers are not considered fair use anymore. Good luck with your golf anyway :) --Filius Rosadis (talk) 17:46, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi there. The issue at hand was that a non-free image (book cover) was being used to depict a living person, where it can be reasonably assumed that a free image of that person would be available. Now that it's been removed from the article, that's no longer the case. However, the file is now an orphan and is subject to deletion for that reason. See if you can dig up a freely-licensed image of Bennett. Cheers, Steamroller Assault (talk) 18:21, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
I'm trying to contact Mike, thanks.--Nuares (talk) 18:25, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Your question at the Commons help desk[edit]

Regarding the guy who's willing to donate pictures into the public domain but doesn't want to use a computer, I wrote: "Once the person has written the letter and it's sent to OTRS, upload the images with a {{PD-author}} template (making sure to add the photographer's name after a pipe character) and add an {{OTRS pending}} tag. See the original version of File:B.F. Jones Memorial Library.jpg." Hope this is helpful; if you're not familiar with what I mean by "OTRS", please read the rest of the discussion at Commons. Thanks for your work! Nyttend (talk) 13:34, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Wikimedia Stories Project[edit]


My name is Victor and I work with the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that supports Wikipedia. We're chronicling the inspiring stories of the Wikipedia community around the world, including those from readers, editors, and donors. Stories are absolutely essential for any non-profit to persuade new people to support the cause, and we know the vast network of people who use Wikipedia have so much to share.

I find stories that drive our annual fundraising efforts. It's important to convey the incredible diversity of people who've come to rely upon Wikipedia every day.

I'd really like the opportunity to interview you to tell your story, with the possibility of using it in our materials, on our community websites, or as part of this year’s fundraiser to encourage others to support Wikipedia.

I will be in Buenos Aires from the 10th - 11th of March 2012.

I'm hoping you will elaborate on your story with me. Please let me know if you're inclined to take part in the Wikipedia Stories Project!

Thank you,

Victor Grigas
